When the Nurse suggests that there might be a cat flu going around Disney, this is not as far-fetched as it sounds, as Disney has five permanent feeding stations for feral cats, which prowl the park after hours keeping the rodent population in check. See more »

Black & white dread in Disneyworld
19 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

My first thought was what the *beep* did I just watch? It was however, a very interesting, well made film that, to me anyways, didn't make much sense.

At times hilarious, genuinely frightening, surreal, and creepy, this black and white film seems to tell some sort of message about Disneyworld, though I'll be damned if I know what it is.

That's all I'll say about the movie, which in fact takes place in Disneyworld in it's entirety. If David Lynch and Terry Gilliam had a baby, and that baby grew up in an insane asylum watching Disney movies day in and day out, this is the film I would expect that individual to eventually write and direct.

I'd also like to add that the movie had nothing to do with pedophilia, as at least one other review suggests. The topic isn't even touched on.

I wasn't bored for a minute and I would definitely recommend this one to any fans of fantasy/horror. 8/10.
